Staff Awards 2018

The Welsh Ambulance Service’s annual Staff Awards are now open for nominations.

Every year the Trust holds a ceremony to recognise colleagues with long service and celebrate the fantastic achievements of our staff.

As well as those traditional long service awards, there are category awards including for Team of the Year, Personal Excellence, Inspiring Others and Innovation.

Anyone can nominate, including staff, volunteers, partners and the public.

Chief Executive (Interim) Patsy Roseblade said: “Our staff and volunteers are the lifeblood of this organisation, so it’s really important that we celebrate their contributions.

“Often, our staff don’t realise that what they do is special; they see it as part of their daily job, so the Staff Awards are an opportunity to pause and reflect on their achievements and to say a big thank you.

“We heard some incredible stories of dedication, commitment and courage at last year’s ceremony, and I already know that this year’s event will be another amazing showcase.

“I’m so inspired by the excellentservice we provide across all aspects of our work and throughout the whole organisation, and I look forward to seeing this reflected in the submissions.”

There are 11 categories in total.

To make a nomination, first read the Guidance for Nominations document below, then download and complete the relevant nomination form, returning to us as per the instructions on the form.

Check out the Frequently Asked Questions and Example Submissions document for helpful hints and tips when writing your submission.

Ensure your entries are in before the closing date, which is 29 June, 2018.
